Living with Your Puppy - Establishing Pack Structure DVD -- NEW wrap -

I am asking $35.00 for this DVD. Price includes shipping within the USA.
Please email me if you are interested.

This item is brand new (still in original shrink wrap).

From Leerburg's website:

Every new puppy owner has the same image of what they want their new dog
to be like as an adult.

First and foremost, everyone wants a great relationship with their dog
but beyond that, those who plan on keeping their dog in their home want
a calm, well-mannered, obedient house dog that minds and respects their
family and friends.

Those who plan on keeping their dog outside want a calm well-mannered
dog that is respectful to the family and is quiet in the yard or kennel.
They only want their dog to bark at strangers that come near the home.

New dog owners think the road to success only involves obedience
training and house training new puppies.

Don't get me wrong--puppies need to be house trained and they need
obedience training--but these are only two small parts of a much larger
program needed to produce calm, obedient, well-mannered, respectful
house dogs that have a good relationship with their owners.

Let me give you a few facts to think about which will help make my

We start with the misconception of "how obedience training leads to a
well-mannered house dog."

The best training system there is (which is operant conditioning or
training with markers which we will talk about later) involves multiple
short training sessions throughout the day.

Training 4 or 5 times a day for 2 to 3 minutes in a session is much more
effective than training one 20 minute session a day.

Training 5 times a day for 3 minutes at a time is 15 minutes. What about
the other 23 hours and 45 minutes in the day? What happens with those
who happen to get a challenging puppy – one that bites, barks, is a
little wild or a little too independent?

Local obedience classes teach very specific behaviors:
Walk on a leash
The problem with young puppies is they cannot and should not be expected
to perform a behavior (like a down stay) for long periods of time. With
training we can expect compliance for up to 30 seconds but not much
We compare puppies to 2-year-old children. What do we expect in
compliance from human babies? Not much. The same goes for our puppies.

Many new dog owners totally miss this very valid point.

What do we do when they misbehave?
As professional dog trainers, we teach people that they cannot and
should not administer corrections unless a dog refuses to perform a
command that we are 100% sure the dog knows and understands.

This translates into "we don't correct puppies" until there is no
question that the puppy knows and understands a command but refuses to
do it. That usually means after the dog is much older. This age is
different for every dog and that's only assuming the owner has done a
good job of training.

The heart of the issue: how to manage your puppy all day?
Neither you nor your puppy can or should train all day and leaving a pup
or young dog to their own devices for long periods of time isn't
realistic either. What should you do with all that time? This DVD will
give you an understanding of how to effectively manage your puppy's time
and turn natural instincts into acceptable behaviors. You will learn how
to build a positive working relationship based on your puppy's natural
desire to belong to a family group or "pack." We will show you how to
redirect your pup's natural tendencies to bite and chase, how to create
rules based on your expectations and how to set yourself up for success.
Our dogs are valued members of our family and investing the time and
energy into the foundation of rules and good behavior will help to
create the family dog we all want.
